I left the House with 227 miles this morning
i drove 70 miles with heat on and defrost it was about 10 degrees
and used them sparingly on the trip
I drove a total of 70 miles round trip
when i came home i was down to 103 miles 60 percent charge left
Does that make sense? It seems like a lot of power used?
Does it make sense to use the GOM?
No, it doesn't. Get LEAF Spy and monitor your driving a bit to get a line on your expected efficiency. Its much easier to do than it sounds.

Then use LEAF Spy to see how much range you are expecting that day based on your weather expectations comparing numbers at the beginning and end of the trip.


LEAF Spy only uses a constant to figure out range. GOM uses a variable which is your driving. Now that would imply GOM is more accurate but it isn't. On my daily trips to work, I average about 3.6 miles/kwh going, 4.2 miles/kwh returning. If I charge car overnight, what will GOM reflect?

The 4.2

With LEAF Spy you can use the 3.9 miles/kwh daily average
